The Iconoclasts  



The Iconoclasts is back with another alpha, new trailer


10:00 PM on 10.18.2012



I had given up hope on The Iconoclasts, the remarkable action-adventure game being developed by Konjak, thinking that it was too ambitious. In addition to having some rather lush pixel artwork, it showed quite a bit of promise with an alpha build released publicly last year.

Now, armed with a new trailer and yet another playable build, Konjak is back to report that the game is far from dead. "I released the first alpha version when I was losing some motivation on it and have since decided to come back to it," he writes, "and I'm giving my best. That version is already quite inferior to what I have now, and you can check out the 2012 alpha for more up-to-date quality, and help me out by telling me if you have problems with that one! Keep in mind, the newer alpha is a bit shorter."

Having now played both -- this second one is worth a look, even if you're familiar with The Iconoclasts -- I'm convinced that the game, should it ever get finished, will be an instant classic. This is one of those genres I'll never grow tired of, so I hope that day isn't too far off.
